at a rally in manchester, new hampshire. next stop new york city for a taping of "the daly show" the president seizing on the same mathematical problems we were discussing. he did not use the word "sketchy" but did say mitt romney's trying to sell you faulty products. >> and touched on is what the underlying debate beneath the numbers, which is how do you grow an economy. do you grow it by giving tax cuts to the wealthy as romney argues, they and their wisdom will create jobs because they'll be enriched and have all of this extra money laying around that they don't have any place to put in the cayman islands, or do you, as president obama said, give it to the customers basically and let them grow the economy by shopping and buying things, which then you know creates more demand. so those are two very different models that are contesting here. >> but you know, the president also remains the american public -- i don't know what degree this message is penetrating -- mitt romney basically wants to continue the fiscal policy of george w. bush and the president said now, you don't wan
